There is a lovely house here in Greenwich on Carleton Street that I pass by about six times per day when I am running my kids back and forth to camp. It’s a white house and the owners have recently put up gray shutters and are doing additional renovations, and the project caught my eye. I started thinking about how elegant gray can be so I just pulled a few photos of homes with gray shutters for inspiration here on the blog. Here are a few I thought you would enjoy:
